"I SHALL BE YOUR EVE"
Four-person exhibition at The Blender Gallery, Athens, 2020 - 2021.
Τhe Blender Gallery in collaboration with Varvara Roza Galleries, presents the group exhibition titled
"I Shall be Your Eve".
Each artist, in her own way, assesses human existence. They all focus on the feminine side of things, unavoidably suggesting the male element too, and they ultimately pay homage to the imperfections that render each human being unique; imperfections that were so deeply envied by the Gods: the mortals’ passions, concerns, simplistic lifestyle, and complicated relationships.
In art, Eva is often portrayed as the evil victimizer rather than the victim, which results in a negative portrayal of women and sexuality. However, in the exhibition I shall be your Eve, through the work of the four artists, we choose to view Eva’s actions as the beginning of Man’s real journey into life and knowledge. The First Woman, represents the transition from the Superior Being (God) to the human existence. Like a modern and femme fatale Eva that took a bite of the forbidden fruit from the “tree of knowledge”, each of the four artists searches, answers about love, time, the universe and the man’s place in it.
Participating artists: Christina Papaioannou, Charoula Nikolaidou, Ermina Avramidou and Eliona Ntoukni.
